Me too. They're terrific announcers.

DMTC still a tough room. Thought my Hollywood Derby call was pretty solid. Called all 14 three times. No pauses or hesitations. Painted a pretty good picture.
Not as much fun to give atta boys. Easier to judge, knock and hate.
I challenge anyone to try to call one race, one time, without any hesitation or pause, let alone day after day, race after race. I like all three callers in question, For those who think that Mike or Trevor are perfect, you aren't listening objectively. Mistakes are made by ALL callers everyday in all kinds of races. This beating up of Vic's calls is really over the top, mob mentality, unwarranted crap. Just saying...
What about the clever quips that Michael can spontaneously put into his call like a horse is further back than his car payment
or a horse is speeding on the lead faster than a Kardasian wedding. I don't hear the other 100 + track announcers saying
anything close to that or as clever as that.

I couldn't do it. So he made some mistakes--who hasn't? Was there anyone at HP today who noticed? Was there anyone at HP today at all? Their attendance has not been real good this season; in fact it's been horrible. At least Vic has a passion for the sport.
Fan forums are enjoyable. They are not life or death.
